Hi,

Hard to tell from those bad pictures, but at least the following are wrong parts, could be even more:

-Front lamp
-Speedometer
-Handlebar levers+armature
-Silver part on fuel tank should be chrome, or aluminium (not painted)
-Decals on fuel tank
-Air filter
-Horn
-Fuel tap
-Foot rest rubbers
-Rear lamp
-Electrical wiring

Most of those those wrong parts are "Hard-to-find-parts" (read expensive), so count with at least 2000-3000€ and a lot of time to get the things right.

Hi Frank,

many thanks, your opinion is highly appreciated.
What do you mean for wrong parts? wrong model on this bike or repro , not original?

I am not so expert about the dkw nz but I am looking for my first one and I need to learn as much as possible.

regards
Paolo

Hi Paolo,

Sorry for being unclear.

With wrong parts I mean they are from some other make/model of motorcycle and not belong to a NZ350.

Hi Paolo,

Try to find the ETL 58 (Parts catalogue Nr58), its for the early NZ350 model and there you can see how the correct parts should look like:

Try also Google and try to search pre war pictures (later pictures often shows messed up bikes with wrong parts) of NZ350, there you can also see the correct parts.
